We spent a week at our timeshare on Maololo LaiLai Island and much of our days were spent hanging around the beautiful beachside pool -Dick's Place, listening to the Fijian musicians, making friends with the staff and enjoying the food, afternoon cooking classes, watching boats come and go and the Fijian sunset. The food was great, the staff are amazingly... More

Musket Cove is a gem, and a great value for the price. With a variety of accommodations depending on your budget, all on a beautiful beach and with access to fun watersports, bikes and other activities. The food is great and the staff are wonderful. Whether you want to relax or be active, this is a great choice.

Musket Cove is fabulous. The service was outstanding from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. The rooms are big and bright, there is a wonderful cookie fairy who fills up your complimentary cookie jar every day, the food was amazing - especially breakfast and the staff were so friendly and helpful. We loved the atmosphere. The free... More

We had three days at Musket Cove and it just wasn't enough. Beautiful resort setting, great snorkeling, easy to get to Cloudbreak (for the surfers), friendly and helpful staff, bures were great (we had garden bure 58 which had garden and ocean views) and food was delicious (especially the Fijian curry and roti!). Would definitely be back and would highly... More

We stopped at Musket Cove Resort for two nights before moving to Likuliku resort. The recommendation had come from an American friend who had lived in Fiji, he really encouraged us to try both resorts. We can see why! Musket Cove is a lively, family resort that comes across as entirely genuine and casual. They really encourage you to relax... More

My wife and I traveled from the states to musket cove for our honeymoon. The 23 hours of travel that it takes to get there is well worth it. Musket Cove strikes the perfect balance of luxury without being too “resort-ish.” You genuinely feel as though you are living life on a private island. We spend 11 nights are Musket... More

Loved Musket Cove. The food was excellent, the staff were friendly and professional, there were lots of things to do and free water sports including 2 snorkelling trips each day. The hotel is situated in a great location with awesome views over the bay. We booked a Beach Side Bure, and we're so glad we did. Stunning views from the... More
